Don't be a turkey; celebrate this wonderful holiday. Paul Goldfinger photo

Don’t be a turkey; celebrate Thanksgiving, a wonderful holiday. Paul Goldfinger photo in Ocean Grove, NJ (July 4 parade)  ©  Reposted from 2014 on Blogfinger.

On Thanksgiving morning, the Rutherford High School marching band would arrive at Passaic High School stadium for the oldest high school football rivalry in New Jersey.  We played the Thunderer for most of our half time shows.  I was in the sax section where I kept one eye on the flute players and the other on the fringed Indians—the Passaic cheerleaders.  What’s better on Thanksgiving than beautiful girls in leather.

Then, after the inevitable loss on the field, we consoled ourselves with the knowledge that our band was better; then it was back across the river and home for turkey.

Hi Paul..

One of the dredgers is back in our area…I shot this this morning off of Allenhurst… Not sure if this is a continuation of the original sand replenishment or perhaps some additional maintenance due to storms.

Serenity. Sunrise in Ocean Grove. By Bob Bowné

“Serenity.” Sunrise in Ocean Grove. By Bob Bowné

Hi Paul:

Greetings from Manhattan. I was struck by your quietly beautiful photo, “Beachfront Sunrise,” (posted recently on Blogfinger*), and your statement that you preferred sunrises to sunsets because “beginnings are happier than endings.” Here is the poem, “Dawn,” from my 2008 collection, Father of Water.

Best wishes,

Charles Pierre

 

 

Dawn

By Charles Pierre

 

The first hint of morning on the ocean

is a trembling of shadows,

 

a dark hovering of muted tones

that moves with imperceptible pace,

 

a vanishing medium through which

the day brightens and widens,

 

the new light going on for miles and miles

in the shine of emerging surf.

*See the post  “Fishing Pier at Sunrise “by scrolling down to Nov. 21 where it has been brought closer to Charles Pierre’s wonderful sunrise poem, “Dawn” where he makes reference to the image in his introduction.  *
